How do I add another profile?

+3 votes
I have found different family that have some same as my people in them, do I add my information and then merge the two? Is there anyway I can just add them and their already put in information in my tree without having to merge?

Welcome to G2G!  Please do not create duplicate profiles.  If you have information to add to an existing profile, you can edit the existing profile and add your info.  It's always a good idea to contact the profile manager before making major changes.

If you already have a profile then find it is a duplicate, you need to propose a merge.

If you haven't created a profile because it is already on Wikitree, you might want to contact the profile manager of the existing profile and ask to be added to the trusted list, explaining why you want to be on it.

On open profiles, you can edit without being on the trusted list, eg adding sources and adding details to the biography but it is Wikitree policy to communicate with the manager for any major changes, such as detaching wrong parents.

Here is a link to help you connect your family to existing profiles. 

Hope that helps sort things out for you.
